The Dark and Light of Life

The Dark and Light of Life

A Ti plant in sunlight

Good Morning, God!

And, yes, it is still morning . . . although I guess that doesn’t matter from a cosmic viewpoint. Alas, I don’t have a Cosmic Viewpoint. I am, after all, a Human.

Dang! I suspect most of my frustrations and unrealized goals stem from a failure to fully understand that I am human — which is both more limiting than I want to know and more filled with possibilities.

Recently, God, I have been going back through my Life, trying to see my Sins of commission and omission. Actually,   I prefer thinking of sins as times I missed the Mark or Fell Short.

Besides, let’s face it God, the sins of omission are infinite! Sigh.

However, some failures as a mother do stand out. And I am willing and wanting to make amends. At the same time, I know I’m capable of “making things worse!” Really, God, it takes such courage to Live Fully!

I am certain that as sins go, mine could be worse. But, that misses the point! The point is that they are Mine and they are tired of being ignored and locked up. They want to come up and be dealt with — or at least acknowledged. That requires of me both Personal Courage and Personal Respect.

It means stepping out of the Positive Light to which I am so addicted and stepping into the Dark. But, as You are reminding me, our planet needs both Night and Day.

So, holding Your Hand, I am taking a few steps down into my Inner Castle’s dungeons to see what I have imprisoned there. I did a story on this years ago. I took a few small steps and then stopped.

Yes, God, it’s time to continue working on forgiving my mistakes and myself.
